of barack obama when it comes to drones, on the other hand, you are to the right of congressman paul ryan, whose budget you oppose, voted against this weekend, in the senate, because you say that it doesn't cut the budget balance -- budget fast enough. do you think there is room for a realistic, feasible presidential candidate who is to the left of obama on some issues and to the right of paul ryan, on other issues? >> i think we have a confusing spectrum, the left-right spectrum doesn't always work for people but because of the confusion it shows that someone like myself, i think, could appeal to young people, independents and moderates, because, many of them do think it is a mistake to put people in jail for marijuana use and throw away the key. so, i think there are people who would like a less aggressive foreign policy and there are all kinds of issues that don't neatly left in the left-right paradigm that i think would help, because we're not doing very well in a lot of these states, purple and blue states and we need a candidate that would appeal across the left-right paradigm.
